Small Rainforest Quilt
Well here is the final version of my little quilt. It’s almost 13” by 16" and so tiny to have made such a fuss about it (smile) It has been such fun to make and a steep learning curve as it was my first art quilt, the ones I have made before have been as gifts for my grandchildren when they were babies. But I think I’m now hooked on this type of work and I’m already thinking about my next one.
Watch this space for my next piece of work for the Rainforest project. It uses the embellisher and machine embroidery.
Would you believe we had fresh snow on the mountains in May?
Snow on the mountain!
Can you see these pale pink ‘things’ on the beach? When I first saw them I was convinced they were some birds that were resting after a long flight which does happen from time to time. I looked and looked as I passed the window expecting one of them to move or fly away, but nothing happened. They were still there the following day, so they couldn’t be birds, but they were definitely something new on the beach.
We have Mussel Beds around that part of the beach and someone is there picking them every day and I think I’ve solved the problem of the ‘things’ because I saw one of the men lifting up the edge of one of them looking for Mussel Shells, so these must be markers. Problem solved.
We’ve also had people staying on a boat for the last few days and even though it’s been so cold they must have had a wonderful time. The two young children in the dinghy have been enjoying paddling around when the tide is low, the two dogs have been running around on the sandbank and I’m sure the adults must have been enjoying it all too.
